29. A Fantastic Lecture on Depression

I am involved with a discussion group on the NAMI website (National Alliance on Mental Illness). Someone from the group posted a website with Stanford’s Dr. Sapolsky  giving a 52-minute lecture on depression that is one of the most complete and integrated descriptions of depression that I’ve ever seen from the body and soul sides (he does not bring in the spirit). He posits that depression is as real of a biological disease as diabetes…and also covers the components of psychological, stress, genetics, hormones, medical conditions, and more that have an impact on depression. Knowledge leads to understanding and understanding leads to healing. Here is the link to the lecture: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NOAgplgTxfc. I highly recommend you take it in.

About Patrick Day

In 2010, I escaped from four long years of deep, dark depression. This blog shares lessons I learned from those years as depicted in my autobiography - How I Escaped from Depression - as well as other insights about depression and anxiety that only come from someone who has gone through it. When you have a heart attack, you become an expert in heart attacks. When you have diabetes, you become an expert in that condition. As such, I am an expert in depression, with a four-year experiential degree and graduate studies in how to live a life going forward that keeps the ever-lurking Depression at a healthy distance.
